that could come back and bite us. remember george w. bush's drunk driving arrest that was revealed the weekend before the 2000 campaign and came close to costing him the election? romney has smart people. they did this with him. things like the swiss bank account and the cayman islands and bermuda and all that stuff came up, and the tax rates, and whether he is going to reveal them. romney went right through the stop sign. he, who did not want to discuss it with this source and with money, so deep, so pervasive, that this is a man who has been running for president for most of the 21st century. is not something that just jumped out this the -- not just something that jumped out on him . as far as jobs are concerned, one figure to remember -- more jobs created last year under barack obama in the private sector than in the eight years of george w. bush's presidency. >> even "the wall street journal" editorial page says romney has squandered the summer because he let obama defined him as a wealthy elitist, and then they excoriated him for being shown in a jet ski in front of his mansi

's been very grateful how the bushes have been. president george w. bush have stayed largely on the sidelines. i don't need to play the critic. i think he struck up a pretty good relationship with george h. w. bush. so the relationship with clinton is prickly and complicated. chris: it is an interesting friendship-rivalry. before we break, the famously close relationship between the bush and bill clinton didn't start out so swimingly. clinton was flummox at al gore keeping him at a distance because of the lewinsky matter. but he couldn't resist spouting off. he held out a texas twang and gave his best bush impression. i'm a governor, my daddy was president. i own a baseball team. but al gore was right in using the lewinsky issue. >> now if he decides he can't help himself and starts campaigning against me, the shadow returns. bill: the shadow. we learned when book visited the white house after the recount of 2000, he asked clinton if that shadow offended him and he gave him a pass. and of course clinton became close to george bush 41 and the family. they consider clinton a br

the democratic party's agenda is. that's the problem. you mentioned other presidents not doing this. but george w. bush did it, john mccain did it and presidential candidates did it. i think republicans need to end this tradition of appearing before the naacp to try and reach black voters. the type of black voters who may be open to voting republican are not at naacp conventions. you can go into communities and visit churches and visit small businesses. you can visit charter schools and so forth. you can advertise on black radio and black television programming. that's how you can reach people. there is no need to go before groups like this and try and seek black votes that way. i don't think it has been a very good strategy. >> what about getting credit? does he get credit foregoing into the liberal group like this saying, look, here is my argument on health care. here is my argument on education. get credit for bravery for reaching out and saying these are my convictions. you need to hear these. >> i just think his time and effort would be better spent on more persuadable people than who he is

romney. secondly, her whole connection is with george w. bush, whose foreign policy and war in iraq are considered a disaster. they cost the republican party both houses in 2006, and the presidency in 2008. why would you do it? what exactly does she bring some what state does she bring? >> because of the cabinet post that she held, the fact that she worked for sandy berger, colin powell, bob zoellick. >> she didn't work for sandy berger, did she? >> she was part of sandy berger's generation. >> i don't think she's that old. >> i'm not an authority on herbicide okay grief. she worked at the hoover institution. the woman is a brilliant woman. >> when we were with nixon in '68, there was a point where he was way down. he was tied with humphrey, and you take the safe pick. >> is it safe to say that everybody on this panel is poo- pooing, except me, a possible candidacy? >> yes. >> as a running mate? >> not as a rung mate. she's phot got many great qualifications but not for this ticket. >> not for this particular. >> poo-pooing. >> okay who will be romney's vice presidential running mat

election that year, then-texas governor george w. bush running against al gore pledged to give that money back to the taxpayers. >> we don't believe the surplus is the government's money. we know the surplus is the people's money and we're going to send some of that money back to the people who pay their bills. >> and send it back he did. when he became president, through temporary tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 known as the bush tax cuts. the first of those tax cuts were set to expire back in 2010 but the economy was still shaky back then, so vice president biden and senator mitch mcconnell struck a deal to extend them for two more years for everyone. now those tax cuts are set to expire again at the end of this year. it is part of the so-called fiscal cliff that economists are warning the u.s. could go over if congress doesn't deal with it. now, president obama says let's extend them for another year -- but -- and this is the key point, not for everyone, just for what he calls the middle class -- families earning less than $250,000 per year, or individuals earning less than $200,000. >> i be

the president is. the president i think faces a reality much like george w. bush did in 2004. it is absence on bigger recovery. it is entirely possible he will get to election day without 50% of the voters saying they approve. some increment of voters he has to find a way to convince them to stick with him. the way you do that is by making the challenger up acceptable to voters. this struggle between the two sides to defind what the bain experience is whether it shows romney to be someone who has personified the problem i think is going to be a central tipping point in this race. >> even republican alabama governor robert bentley is chiming in saying release the tax returns although now he is saying his words is taken out of context. are republicans in large numbers also questioning romney's approach here? >> a few other conservative commentators, what romney is doing is somewhat unusual. he drew a very hard line saying you are not getting anymore tax returns from 2010 and 2011. the tax returns, the bain experience and offshore accounts is all part of one kind of broad set of issues that th

in being v.p. she is pro-choice, and she, of course, you know, was such -- close to george w. bush, she brings up the iraq war and weapons of mass destruction and all of that. so some of the journalists purport it to be fair by saying drudge reported it but there's not much time of it happening. they still gave it airtime. why is that? >> man, i was with my good conservative buddy, pat buchanan, when the news broke on this. and he was just outraged at the notion. that's how many conservatives view a possible -- possibility of condi rice as a candidate. many on the left are outraged over her connections to the iraq war, et cetera, et cetera. and she herself has expressed no interest. i take her at her word. but kbryeah, for one thing, dru has credibility with reporters because they all have -- many as their home page. i've seen this. because of exposure to it. when he has a big headline, folks say, well, drudge is well connected with the romney campaign and others, must be something to this. you know, there's no other evidence anywhere, howard. >> sometimes his scoops are right. this one

in at least two presidential campaigns, for george w. bush, how do you explain why governor romney hasn't put out more of his tax returns? >> i have seen this with candidates and i saw this with dwi with president bush, that came out late in the campaign. and a number of other candidates that i worked for. i think it's two things. first, obviously, there's something there. if not he would say, have at it. that compromises what he said in the past about something. but i think the bigger thing is, it's arrogance. many of these politicians think, i can get away with it. i don't have to do this. that in the end is the problem that sort of walk into these, i don't have to do this, i can address in some other way. if everything was fine, he would have been out there. >> i want to get to donna, you're nodding your head. >> mitt romney released all that's necessary for people to understand something about my finances, end quote. something is a pregnant word. the cost of not releasing the returns are clear, therefore, he must have calculated that there are higher costs in releasing them. >> and he's g

years of tax returns in 2000. george w. bush released many years of his tax returns. john kerry also released many, many years. same with john mccain. you just don't run for president and get away with not releasing your returns. now, what i suspect, alex, he might do is he might pull something i have seen in my years as a journalist. other really rich candidates do. they don't pass out copies but they -- invite reporters to come sit in a room and look at it for three hours and can't make copies. you can't make heads or tails of anything. he might try to pull something like that. >> what's inning to me, this is a very intelligent man. released all his tax returns while being vetted by potential vp pick by john mccain many years prior. then have you these four years where he's clearly on the public stage. you would think -- even though people are suggesti ining he ha something to hide, you think he knows better. i keep going back to why aren't you just doing it? i mean, he has been on the public stage and probably had aspirations to run for the presidency four years ago. you know, i m

probably knows, former reagan and president george h.w. bush official saying that no claim for regulatory issues have increased. he says this. republicans have embraced the idea that this is holding back employment. they assert that barack obama has unleashed a tidal wave of new regulation which created uncertainty of business and prevents them from investing in hiring. as i said, he said, no hard evidence is offered for this claim. he then says, in my opinion that means -- bruce bartlett -- not my opinion, regulatory system is a kenard used by republicans to pursue an agenda supported by the business community year in and year out. nornede, it's a case of political opportumism. that's his opinion. not mine. my concern is if you ask economists on whether or not legislation -- many pieces of legislation that we baffed called jobs bills -- the gentleman has pointed that out -- economists say in the short term which is really what we need to do, we need to do in the short term and the long term is not going to create jobs. . this week we haven't done anything to create jobs. might i ask the
